At first, when still small, I thought this was a primrose, then it grew to about 2 feet in height before these pretty lavender blue blooms appeared. Leaves are rough textured. I feel like I should know what this is!

Some sort of Gentian, or maybe Blueweed, Echium vulgare
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Yes, Campanula! The close-up of my bloom shot seem to match, possibly this one.
